Moving house at Christmas time? This time of year is busy and stressful for everybody. A lot of business employees will take leave for holidays and many self employed will stop working all together, so be as prepared and efficient with your move as possible. We've put together some tips to get you started.
Internet. Preserve your sanity and make sure this is up and running from day dot. No one wants to hear kids complaining they are bored. You've probably promised yourself that the kids will have less YouTube time and spend the holidays playing outside, but in reality, don't kid yourselves. It's not unusual for your internet provider to take 2 weeks for a technician to be available so make sure you book this in as far in advance as possible.
Carpet cleaning services will also be busy at this of year with households preparing for visitors or seasonal carpet cleaning, so book well in advance to avoid having to hire a do-it-yourself machine.
House cleaners will also be booked up again with busy families hiring their services for a good clean before the in-laws arrive for Christmas.
Home removal companies are still busy. Christmas house moving is common as many wait to move interstate once the kids have finished school. Book in early if you want to avoid total disaster.
Property maintenance and lawns. If you are needing someone to come and tidy up the property, book a date as early as possible. Everyone wants their gardens tidies for visiting relatives and friends and also storm season, so they are not going to be available on short notice.
